hmm "throw sum mo" isn't quite the world-stopping masterpiece i expected of these three acts tho

lex pretend, Tuesday, 9 December 2014 17:52 (three years ago) Permalink

legit didn't know two-9 was a collective

johnny crunch, Tuesday, 9 December 2014 18:48 (three years ago) Permalink

i was expecting better from "throw sum mo" but still kinda anticipating this

dyl, Tuesday, 9 December 2014 20:27 (three years ago) Permalink

it's a perfectly acceptable album cut. So far everything these guys have released has grown on me like crazy so I wouldn't put it past any of these tracks to do the same.

Thanks for starting this thread Lex!

i love the beat on it, time will tell on the song itself

this was still supposed to be an EP like a few weeks ago, pretty cool that the success of the singles got it bumped up to a full-length album

some dude, Tuesday, 9 December 2014 21:10 (three years ago) Permalink

Throw Sum is excellent imo. Up there with the other two.

longneck, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 08:13 (three years ago) Permalink

it's alright but i really wanted everyone involved to just wild out as we know they can, not anything this understated

lex pretend, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 11:11 (three years ago) Permalink

I was definitely ready for an understated Nicki at this point in time. I also like the concept of an understated strip club jam.

longneck, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 11:48 (three years ago) Permalink

well "pour it up" is over a year old now

lex pretend, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 12:06 (three years ago) Permalink

And from than on only overstated strip club jams are allowed? I like the way the boys' overexcitement in the verses is punctured every time by Nicki's disinterested voice + the giggly "nothing really matters anyway" quality of the beat.

*then

longneck, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 15:06 (three years ago) Permalink

aren't 90% of strip club jams all sad submarine synths feel-my-pain emo nonsense anyway these days?

my disappointment was more that if you've got rae sremmurd AND nicki AND young thug on the same track you should be playing to their collective wilding-out strengths

lex pretend, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 16:00 (three years ago) Permalink

But this isn't a sad submarine synth feel my pain emo joint. It's a celebration of the absurdity of it all. And it's great.

I mean don't get me wrong, I'm all for underground musical acts having stupid names, but when you start to get mainstream exposure & radio airplay & shit you have to stop and think "actually, how are people not on the internet supposed to talk about this music"

I can just, like, YOLO with Uber (bernard snowy), Thursday, 18 December 2014 17:44 (three years ago) Permalink

i heard a radio DJ or two struggle with their name when they first started getting airplay a few months ago, now they all have pretty much gotten the hang of it. it's really not that hard to pronounce or spell.

It's fun to say imo

Number None, Thursday, 18 December 2014 18:18 (three years ago) Permalink

"throw sum mo" is ok ... the beat feels a bit too soon after "only" to me

also i'm not sure who decided nicki should be on a hook w/ no verse and young thug should rap a verse w/ no hook but i don't think it worked out -- nick sounds extremely bored

Every time I've heard a radio dj say their name (which is twice) they have made a point of explaining that it is ear drummers backward

Which it isn't, it's drummers ear backward

I love how media pretends like everyone is dumb as fucking shit and didn't realize this within like the first four seconds of seeing their name

i always thought it was "drummers ear,"like swimmers ear or something

I esteem the word sremmurd, it is truly beautiful, but I prefer it without the 'sh' sound which also turns the drummers ear thing into sean connery

powerglide is a 'side 2 side' remake

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Thursday, 1 March 2018 09:06 (one month ago) Permalink

Yeah, hence the Juicy J appearance I guess. That's three minutes of Swae Lee before anyone else is called to the table, though.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Thursday, 1 March 2018 09:19 (one month ago) Permalink

i wouldn't exactly say it's a side 2 side remake. i really like it tho juicy's verse is def superfluous

J0rdan S., Thursday, 1 March 2018 16:31 (one month ago) Permalink

How do you guys feel about the two solo tracks though? I must admit that I prefer the two (three, if we’re counting Pegasus) group tracks so far.

human and working on getting beer (longneck), Thursday, 1 March 2018 18:02 (one month ago) Permalink

swae's track is nice but it doesn't strike me as a hit... not sure i ever needed a slim jim solo track tho

J0rdan S., Thursday, 1 March 2018 18:54 (one month ago) Permalink

I think Swae's track is glorious

Jimmi is very much becoming the Big Boi to Swae's Andre 3000, the solid and maybe even underrated rapper eclipsed by his more interesting, creatively daring counterpart. His third of the record is obviously the one everybody's least excited about but I could see it being a sleeper.

We're so lucky to have these guys.

uh let's relax here...

J0rdan S., Thursday, 1 March 2018 21:20 (one month ago) Permalink

to me swae uses one bit of the melody from the side 2 side chorus to go to a completely different place... it feels more like genuine/inspiration artistry to me than pure "remake" especially when compared to that asap ferg song and whatever else

J0rdan S., Thursday, 1 March 2018 21:21 (one month ago) Permalink

for some reason people put on their label a&r hats and decided swae lee had unique solo potential that slim jxmmi would never have even when they only had one song out. at least he had the best verse on "black beatles" i guess.

dyl, Friday, 2 March 2018 17:52 (one month ago) Permalink

yes "for some reason"

J0rdan S., Friday, 2 March 2018 18:04 (one month ago) Permalink

'he had the best verse...' was referring to slim jxmmi since that wasn't clear

anyway "hurt to look" is the clear standout among this recent batch

dyl, Friday, 2 March 2018 18:07 (one month ago) Permalink

yes, this reason, it is a mystery to me

I like jxmmi tho. they did a cool freestyle on radio that was going round last (?) year and jxmmi crushes it

belcalis almanzar (||||||||), Friday, 2 March 2018 19:15 (one month ago) Permalink

He also did a Gucci track on Mr. Davis w/o Swae Lee and absolutely crushed it

Evan R, Friday, 2 March 2018 19:22 (one month ago) Permalink

sorry if swae lee's unique star quality wasn't so clear to me when only "no flex zone" was out, anyone flippantly commenting care to elaborate on what jumped out at you at that time?

Idk why it’s so controversial itt that swae is a more natural breakout star: he’s better looking (seems weird to say that but it’s true and matters); he does the sing-rap post drake thing (sorry for crudeness of that description) and he seems more chilll and confident, whereas jim is more drugged out /manic and channels the bratty element of their sound more. This isn’t to say swae is better per se just better adapted to the current rap ecosystem. I love Jxmmi on their second lp especially, he sounds super hungry

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Thursday, 15 March 2018 19:33 (one month ago) Permalink

he also sings the hook on every one of their hits and wrote one of the biggest songs of last year

do ppl not like "hurt to look"? like i would agree with the assessment above that it will probably not be a hit but i really like it much more than the other recent releases

i wanted to like "hurt to look" but it only has one melodic idea. i can vibe w/ it because it's very vibey but i rate it well below "sativa" as far as swae R&B goes

Swae's "Guatemala" is a pretty forgettable "Unforgettable" rip. But still loving the flood of new material from these guys. Triple-album rollouts are fun

'Guatemala' is terrific too.

Was underwhelmed by some of the tracks as they came out, but, as a group, this is really working for me.
